I normally go to the Crohns forum, but all day today I have been having this pain right under my sternum just like you described, I tried taking tums at lunch and it hasn't done anything for it. I'm very curious to see what you find out. If this doesn't get any better by Monday I'm calling my GI.
Perhaps it has gone away by the time you read this, but if you still have that pain under your breast bone then please try the following as mine took about
4 hours to alleviate.
Drink plenty of bottled still water, try something like Gaviscon
if you have that in your country or something similar that is in liquid form, also do you have any capsules like Omaprazole
I forgot to ask, before you got this pain, did you have anything to eat late on prior to going to bed?
